August 20, 2015 – Executive search firm McCormack & Farrow has opened a Mountain West office in Pocatello, Idaho. Brad Yates, a senior partner with the firm, will manage the new office, which will be integrated closely with the firm’s Arizona and California offices and serve the executive search needs of both publicly traded and privately held businesses operating in the Mountain West.
Mr. Yates is widely connected with engineering, marketing, sales, operations, and general management talent for technology, aerospace, and adjacent industries. He has conducted searches for public, family-owned, and private equity-owned businesses.
“The firm and I are very excited and energized to bring our special brand of executive search to the Mountain West,” said Mr. Yates, who has spent more than 30 years in industry and executive search. He will work to grow McCormack & Farrow’s business in the Mountain West market, as well as oversee continuing business relationships with a number of the firm’s technology and food industry clients.
“More and more, Mountain West employers have executive staffing needs that are not well supported by firms operating in remote metropolitan areas, both in terms of the quality of candidates sourced and in terms of selling the lifestyle benefits of our unique region of the country,” said Mr. Yates. “We are firmly committed to making McCormack & Farrow the ‘go to’ retained executive search firm for Mountain West employers.”
Founded in 1983, McCormack & Farrow is an executive search firm headquartered in Costa Mesa, California. It conducts board of directors, C-level, vice president, and top functional executive searches. The firm’s partners lead industry and functional practices ranging from technology, healthcare, and financial services to general management, sales and marketing, and human resources.
